For many years I have taken sporadic days off work — perhaps one every 2-3 months or so — and it really baffles me why people don’t do it more.
Sure, we want to save vacation days for trips, travel, weddings and the like, but the power of a good day off cannot be underestimated.
Here are 10 reasons to take a random day off:
1. It feels special!
And it is. For me, I like to wake up early, enjoy my coffee in my kitchen and ponder my awesome day ahead.
2. It breaks up the week!
A four-day week feels completely different than a five-day week. It also gives you something to look forward to in the weeks leading up to it.
3. No one else is off.
Unlike a busy holiday weekend where the streets, restaurants, cafes and roads are buzzing, a midweek day off is quiet. It feels as if the world is yours.
4. You can get a table anywhere for lunch or brunch.
This for me is reason enough!
5. Spas, exercise studios, supermarkets, are all way emptier than usual.
You won’t even need an appointment or have to line up (or really wait for much at all).
